Tell Your Story

Journalists and broadcast teams are always seeking innovative ways to cover a news story. Freelancers and news stations across the country are turning to drones to provide their audience with an entirely new perspective. Drones provide stations of any size with an inexpensive and effective way to gather high-quality news imagery that was previously only accessible by helicopter. Before taking to the sky, drone journalists must fully understand the laws and legal repercussions of operating a UAV in the National Airspace System. Our sUAS training courses teach journalists and media teams how to use an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle safely within FAA regulations. Explore our drone training packages and enhance your news coverage capabilities today.

Airspace Authorizations and Waiver Submissions More Info

The FAA has laid out all of the regulations and limitations under which commercial sUAS pilots can operate. For some companies, the need may arise to conduct missions outside of these guidelines. To fly in controlled airspace, drone pilots need to apply for an Airspace Authorization Waiver from the FAA. To go beyond the FAA Regulations under Part 107 such as night flights, an application for a Waiver must be made to the FAA and additional training may be required. Our team can help you navigate this process.
